The IIS 7.0 Administration Pack adds to the set of management features that ship with IIS 7.0 to include Administration UI support for ASP.NET authorization, custom errors, FastCGI configuration, Request Filtering and much more. The Administration Pack also provides a generic configuration editor, capable of setting any IIS 7.0 configuration setting and automatically generating scripts to make the task easily repeatable.
Manage additional features with IIS Manager UI Extensions
The IIS Administration Pack user interface (UI) extensions allow administrators to more easily configure settings in IIS Manager for features previously manageable only through script or by direct editing of configuration files. Specifically, the UI extensions enable IIS Manager users to edit FastCGI settings, such as creating new file handlers; modify ASP.NET authorization and custom error settings; and set up rules for HTTP request filtering.
Manage your configuration files with the Configuration Editor
Configuration Editor allows you to use IIS Manager to make changes to any section, attribute, element, or collection in IIS configuration files, while providing the ability to control modifications to configuration files by placing or removing locks. To help automate configuration tasks, Configuration Editor also gives administrators the ability to generate scripts based on the actions taken in Configuration Editor.
